in thread Perl documentation documentation

I'm not a Windows person and don't have access to Windows this week (the client site training machines are all Red Hat!). I knew something like that existed, but I don't know the details.

Is it on the web anywhere? I see Perl Core Documentation on the ActiveState web site, but no index. Maybe we should one it available, even if we have to write our own.

    IIRC you can install ppm on a linux box and then download the ppm of the Activestate docs. There are also a set of activestate doctools for producing the index and etc. Maybe you aught ot look at one of their linux or solaris builds which will probably also contain it.

    And my opinion is that the tools involved should be coopted into the core. :-)

    BTW, i forgot to mention, class document if you submit it to p5p ill definately send a ++vote email in response. (Er, assuming i see it)

    For the Windows users out there:

    If you installed Perl in the default location, open


    and bookmark it right away.

[ambrus]: choroba: heh heh... I have such a doc bug report somewhere. fixed by now.
[Corion]: Once upon a time I had automatic tests for checking the synopsis, but I stopped doing that because the setup was too fragile on CPAN testers for extracting code from the SYNOPSIS.
[Corion]: Maybe I should move the extraction of the code from the SYNOPSIS section into the author tests, or something like that...
[choroba]: Corion Sounds reasonable
